What is it ?

Random Viewer is a utility that allows to view randomly files in any directories. It uses the basic symbian file association mechanism to recognise the application to launch in association with the file. You can add as many items as you want. Those items are displayed as a graphical list.
Each item can contain multiple directories, can be recursive or not and you can specify a wildcard. In all the files defined by this item, one will be randomly launched if the item is selected.
For instance, if you want to watch one of the multiple videos stored in your phone, but cannot really choose between all of them. Let your phone choose for yourself !
Create also items for your pictures, ringtones, mp3 files, mobiclips, ...
The interface of Random Viewer is intuitive and easy to use (you can use both your stylus or the wheel to control everything). It is also configurable : change the background, the colours or even the layout

What do those listed items consist of

Those items are composed of four fields :
  • "Name" : Name that will be displayed in the list
  • "Directory" : List of directories to search. Paths in this list must be separated by a semicolon character, but a semicolon is not required after the final path. Directories must be fully qualified, including a drive letter and the name must end with a backslash (i.e. : "D:\Media files\audio\;C:\documents\Media files\audio\")
  • "Files" : Filename to search for. May contain wildcards. (i.e. : "b*.jpg")
  • "Recursive" : Check this box to make the search recursive in all the specified directories
To sum up, each item defines a relative list of files in your phone. Random viewer will randomly launch on demand one of those defined files.
